Beautiful tonal work Helen.
Thanks Sonia! Helen
Brilliant detail Helen, well done.
Thank you Amanda! Helen
Lovely work. The centre shows great form and the petals have a nice crispness to their edges.
It may have been useful to add a tonal background, that way you could show the white contrast at the edges without a line. It may also stop the whole image looking too dark. Although the contrast in the tones works really well.
(Thanks for adding your pencils. I've noticed students are really keen to know the grades used )
Thank you Tricia! A good point about a tonal background, by the time I considered that I’d already made the drawing quite dark and didn’t think it would be effective. But I should have a go at that. Helen
A really good likeness of a flower I have never liked. So well done now pick a flower that I like
Thanks Chris. Well, what can I say? ! Maybe I chose it specially?! Helen
You have achieved great form in this drawing. Very nicely done Helen.
Thank you George ! Helen
